Chinese Medical Culture Microclass

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) takes Yin-Yang (a concept of dualism in Ancient Chinese philosophy) and Five Elements (water, fire, wood, metal and soil) as its theoretical basis. According to the TCM theory, the human body is a unity of qi (the body’s vital life force or energy), form and spirit. TCM doctors diagnose patients through inspection, auscultation & olfaction, inquiry, and palpation. By this means, they explore the causes of an illness, analyze specific symptoms, and identify the illness. TCM has many treatment approaches, including medication, acupuncture and moxibustion, tuina (massage), cupping, and dietotherapy. All these methods are aimed to make the human body achieve the balance of yin and yang.

Through stimulating acupoints or specific parts of the human body by different techniques, massage therapy helps dredge channels, relax muscles and reduce fatigue. Massage therapy has become the first choice for busy urbanites to preserve their health and relax.
